"You are the salt of the earth ... You are the light of the world" (Matthew 5: 13-16)

Who I am My name is Jessica Foumena. On behalf of my teamWomen & Africa International (WAI), I invite you to join our first fundraiser.

Who (or what) I'm raising money for My team and I invite you to join us in starting the first WAI fundraiser that aims to provide hygiene products to inmates (women and men) in Cameroon this month of December 2016. This initiative is very personal to me because I had the opportunity to visit prisons in Cameroon. Needless to say, the needs are great. However, every penny will help. This is about giving hope and putting a smile on the faces of these inmates who may be forgotten by their own relatives and/or society.We want to bless around 200 inmates (men and women) with your support.

How the money raised will be used / Comment les fonds collectes seront utilises The hygiene products will be purchased in the capital city of Yaoundé in Cameroon. The distribution will be done by local prison ministries led by local Cameroonian pastors. Hygiene products will be purchased in priority. The amount requested 1, 000 US dollars is set to provide supplies for several months. The budget below will give you a better idea of the distribution of purchases:

1) Hygiene products 60 pieces of soap = 16 000 FCFA / 27 US dollars 25 feminine pads= 11 000 FCFA / 18 US dollars 156 small packages of powder soap = 6 000 FCFA / 10 US dollars Total 1 = 33 000 FCFA / 46 US dollars

2) Food products 1 bag of rice (50 kgs) / 1 carton de riz (50 kgs) = 19 000 FCFA/ 32 US dollars 1 bag of pasta (5 kgs) / 1 carton de pâtes alimentaires = 5 000 FCFA / 8 US dollars 300 small packages of powder milk / 300 petits sachets de lait en poudre = 12 500 FCFA / 21 US dollars Total 2 = 36 500 FCFA / 61 US dollars Grand total = 69 500 FCFA / 107 US dollars How thankful I will be These products will be distributed to male and female inmates in Cameroon for free. My team and I thank you in advance for your support. If you've any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to me.
